Lunch prices will remain the same for Fayette students in the 2010-11 school year.

Fayette Local Schools Board of Education members voted Monday to maintain the same prices: students K-6, $2; students 7-12, $2.30; Super Size meal, $3.10; adult lunch, $3.25; and breakfast for all students, $1.25.

Student fees for elementary students will also remain the same at $45.

Student handbooks and the athletic handbook were approved, but there are no significant changes, said superintendent Russ Griggs.

The board accepted five donations: $50 from Gene Metz Farms for FFA; $74 from Ruth Hutchison for FFA; $160 from an anonymous source for FFA; a GPS system valued at $169 from the Fayette PTO for transportation services; and an HP printer from Pam Lash, with a value of $100.

HEARING—A public hearing was scheduled for the retire/rehire of secondary teacher Barbara Bruggeman.

FOOD BIDS—The board accepted a bid for Nickels Bread and for Reiter Dairy products through the Metropolitan Toledo Educational Purchasing Association.

DRIVER—Dan Seiler was approved as a substitute bus driver, upon completion of all necessary requirements.

COACHES—Natasia Ramos and Hilary Opdycke were hired as junior high volleyball coaches and Sharlene Fry was approved as a volunteer assistant for the girls varsity basketball team.

    ART PARK—A design created by Poggemeyer Design Group shows a “pocket art park” in the green space south of the State Line Observer building. The proposal includes a 12-foot sculpture based on a design created by Morenci sixth grade student Klara Wesley through a school and library collaboration. A wooden band shell is located at the back of the lot. The Observer wall would be covered with a synthetic stucco material. City council members are considering ways to fund the estimated $125,000 project and perhaps tackling construction one step at a time.
